New EVCS can be used for investigative troubleshooting

12-10-2022 | Fluke | Test & Measurement

Fluke has launched a new FEV300 electric vehicle charging station adapter for electric vehicle charging stations (EVCS).

Intended to simulate an EV attached to the EVCS, the user-friendly tool provides for the output voltage of an AC charging station Mode 3 with connector types 1 and 2 to be safely and accurately tested in accordance with IEC/HD 60364-7-722 and IEC/EN 61851-1.

The adapter is compatible with the company's leading MFTs employed in the installation and commissioning of EVCS and routine maintenance tests. The adapter can also be paired with its range of multimeters or scope meters for investigative troubleshooting.

"The energy which is transferred from an EVCS was previously mostly used in industrial environments – and now it is provided directly to private vehicles. Testing of these high-power, live voltage electric systems is critical to ensure the safety of end users and the electricians installing and maintaining these essential pieces of equipment," commented Hans-Dieter Schuessele, Application and Technology Expert at Fluke.

"The new FEV300 Adapter includes significant safety features such as a touch electrode function which quickly displays if there is a high-risk earth fault and improved safety sockets which are covered by plastic lids to protect the connectors in wet weather conditions. The safety aspects of Fluke's new FEV300 Adapter surpass other competitive products in the market."
